Notes from the talks

<< Back to the story

This page contains notes of some of the talks I was listening to. They were written for my own use and not originally intended for publishing (not even trying to be comprehensive, be warned), but I decided to put them here as there isn't a lot of material currently available. Contact the original authors for more information, and Sebastian Blondeel if you have more notes or something else that could be put at the organizers' site.
